EU struggles over law to tackle spread of terror online

…The legislation, proposed by the Commission last year, gives internet companies one hour to remove offending content after receiving an order from a “competent authority” in an EU country.

“Terrorist content” includes material that incites or advocates for terrorist offences, promotes the activities of a terrorist group or teaches terrorist techniques, according to the draft text.

In the original text, companies are also expected to take “proactive measures” to stop the spread of terrorist content.

This includes using automated tools to prevent content that has previously been removed from being re-uploaded.

Oh I’m sure this will work just fine.
